Nanking Rape

This horrific event was known as the Nanking Massacre or the Rape of Nanking. It is estimated that around 20,000 women including children and the elderly were raped during the Japanese occupation of Nanking city.
A large number of rapes were carried out systematically by Japanese soldiers, they went door to door looking for girls and women who were then arrested and gang-raped. And to make matters worse, the women were killed after they were raped.

This incident began with the Japanese who were furious with the Chinese Resistance, and when Nanking, the capital of China, fell in December 1937, Japanese troops immediately massacred thousands of Chinese soldiers who had surrendered to them. The Japanese then rounded up about 20,000 Chinese youths and transported them by truck to the outside of the city walls, where they would be massacred there. Japanese troops then looted the city of Nanking and raped most of the city's female population.
